Highland Park 12 and general questions

Just had Highland 12 for first time and I really liked it. It was a pretty long night of drinking, so perhaps my taste buds were skewed. I was actually sipping balvenie 12 all night until they ran out the switched to Highland.
Anyway, I really liked it and noted that it tastes similar to Lagavulen, in that it had a thick, smokey taste. After a little research, my observation doesn't seem to make sense, being that one's an Islay...and Highland apparently isn't known for being smokey (or petey).
SO:
1. Are my taste buds f'd up?
2. Is Highland slightly smokey/petey, and only after drinking Balvenie, did it seem extremely smokey?
3. Help sort out the confusion!!
